A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Monday, Oct. 14.
Welcome to the Packers News Report. It’s an important gameday for the NFC North, as the Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.
The division couldn’t be much closer. The Minnesota Vikings were impressive in their victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and they move to 4-2 with the win. For now, they’re up to second in the division. Should the Lions win tonight, Minnesota will drop to third and Green Bay will move down to second with Detroit leading the way.
However, a win for the Packers tonight will ensure they remain a game ahead of the Vikings and pull further ahead of the Lions, who would fall behind the Chicago Bears into last place. That’s how close the division is right now. Tonight’s result will determine whether the Lions enter Week 7 in first place or last place in the division.
While Matt LaFleur’s team will enter this game as slight favorites, this will be a tough challenge, even at home. The Lions have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and have played well home and away so far this season. And the fact they’ve had an extra week to prepare will only help them.
